Subject Re: IRC channel

Indeed IRC channels are not so good when it comes to preserve answers.
That's why Apache doesn't promote this even though certain communities
with a big enough community use IRC channels. But they use it mostly for
discussing development issues and they sum up these discussions in the
mailing list so they are archived.

For James I have a propsal: What about setting up a Wiki for Batik? In a
Wiki all users (not just the developers) can work together to add
documentation, gather ideas, to provide code snippets etc. We're already
using a Wiki in FOP [1]. Setting one up for Batik wouldn't be a big deal.
